Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
I had the original Black Mat® PRO, then the PROlite™ and now the eKO Lite™. Manduka has taken me on a “yogagical” journey.
-Stella Valente Wilkins
Los Angeles, California
Why Manduka?: Manduka lasts a long time. It lasts and lasts. Now that's sustainable.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice jumping and arm balances. The steady strength of this mat gives me a sense of strong foundation and security. It is my home practice pad, and it has the energy of 3 years of study and training in its still sturdy shape! Very enduring.

I have been studying hatha yoga, yogic philosophy and practices for 30 years. I am a registered yoga
teacher and yoga therapist with the National Yoga Alliance, an Anusara-Inspired Teacher, and a Certified 7
Spiritual Laws of Yoga Teacher. My specialty is helping people integrate yogic principals of alignment into
their daily lives. I bring awareness to habitual movements, and then expand my students understanding
of how to stand, sit and walk. Over time, every waking movement becomes a form of yoga.
